Minot, N.D. ( TheStreet) -- Oil and gas exploration company Continental Resources (CLR - Get Report) has the biggest footprint and is the leading oil producer in the booming Bakken Shale basin of North Dakota, an advantage in a market of seesawing prices.What's more, its technological expertise in so-called unconventional drilling processes that it has honed here should prove invaluable elsewhere. There are several other known, but still untapped, areas with similar geology as the Bakken throughout North America, Mexico and in Russia's Siberia where Continental's expertise could open vast new resources.
